Nice find! I love how they claim that fiberglass is "cool in summer; warm in winter." Yeah sure, if you are in Minnesota in the summer and Florida in the winter

Also interesting that they spell it "fibreglass," which is usually Canadian (on our continent anyway), yet they are a California company.

Also, did you know that "lightweight fibreglass construction... eliminates road rumble"?

Great old ad

I totally want to see the inside of the trailer! Sounds like the furniture is fiberglass; I wonder what the walls are like? Insulated? Blonde wood?

Oh how did I miss that?

Thanks!

(Oh for cute! Robin's egg blue and all! I wonder how the walls are treated. Perhaps there is some Ensolite-like product, or...)

!957 Pleasurecraft FOR SALE

I just found this Forum this evening. I have a 1957 Pleasurecraft for sale like the one in this thread. I listed it on The Tin Can Tourists site 4 days ago. A few offers, but no sale. I have more pics that I can e-mail also. I will try to get it in the classifieds here, in the next couple of days. I would have listed it on this site to start with, if I had been aware of it.

I love a happy ending!

I too believe from the styling that it might well have been an experiment by the Pleasure Craft boat folks to venture into the trailer business. Have you looked for/found a builder's plate on it anywhere that might give an address or anything?

I am froggie green with envy!!

Shazam! That's a classy trailer! What a pity we have lost all the glamour of the 1950s.
